video for your media project a free video done to r.t. dot com. egypt's first round of elections has seen the highest turnout ever but the results delayed with full custody forecasts now suggesting the islamists winning. the un condemns human rights violations in syria although russia votes against the resolution saying the motion is one sided and will only aggravate the conflict. and the legal loophole in the u.k. is being used as a shield for convicted immigrant criminals saving them from deportation and turning britain into a safe haven for serious offenders from abroad. a
8:01 am
very warm welcome to you this is twenty four hour news live from moscow with me rover showing egyptian officials say turnout for the opening round of parliamentary elections has been the highest in the country since quote the time of the fair i was the official results they were still being delayed but predictions give the lead to the islamist muslim brotherhood party to more election stages are due to be held in january. well we're hearing from the military council record results will be announced today saturday but this is the third time that such an announcement has been made those events in results with are supposed to be given on the way in state we also know hearing from the effects and commission that the voter turnout they gave that stood at sixty two percent which suggested that more than eight million people turned out that that figure is under review off to some
8:02 am
questions were raised about irregularities and the way that epicenter of sixty two was actually reached so we might actually hear makes it today that the voter turnout is significant you know well we haven't yet heard the results of the political parties who scored in these elections but there has been a lot of talk a lot of initial exit polls and a lot of rumors that has been badly developed it does seem as if the muslim brotherhood's political party the freedom and justice party will come first with a standing off between forty to fifty five percent and in second position is likely to be ultra conservative enough its own and the latest figures need to have put that at some fifty to thirty five percent now this is a group that has said that it will push for stricter controls in the parliament there and of course how much power the parliament at the end of the day is given this is in line with the trend we've been witnessing across who in fact the care that in recent years has seen is among the parties coming to the fore now what is
8:03 am
significant about these results of the particular is that the voting at this stage was done mostly in urban areas particularly men in cairo and in that xander so when islamist parties have such a strong showing in urban cities it does set the stage that in the next two phases of these voting the islamists will merely continue to do as well because their hold and their popularity in those kind of areas is much higher it also sets the stage for a coalition to be formed with a significant majority in parliament to come for me isn't on this policies not next week we'll see the second phase of voting this is. house of parliament the third phase will be in january and then they will be voting for the upper house of parliament so be there is a significant number of egyptians who are against these remakes and as most of them have been taking to the streets of the past two weeks and months earlier this year they say that these votes. they say that they did not change real reality on the ground and the rallying call in tahrir square does remain the same and that is for
8:04 am
the military to step down immediately the concern amongst these egyptians is that it doesn't really matter whether you hold elections or whether you change the face of the government it is still the military who are pulling the strings behind the scenes now today saturday we do expect the announcement of the new cabinet that is being formed by the new prime minister come out all guns or we he has already named some of the cabinet at least a dozen ministers one of whom are actually ministers from the previous regime in the same portfolio is this includes the same foreign minister includes the same information minister and while they will be new mains who will be forming part of this government the fact that such a significant majority remain part of the previous government is just merely more ammunition for protesters in tahrir square who say that nothing is changing. his policy reporting right what she is monitoring the situation in cairo and you can follow updates from her on our twitter feed have look at the screen right now and they just tweet us your reports that hundreds continue to sit in on the rear square
8:05 am
claiming the vote is illegitimate and the turnout is significantly lower than what the government boasts do follow her and r.t. other school called get a life the latest from the streets of cairo. now five minutes past the hour here the u.n. human rights council has passed a resolution condemning violations committed by the syrian authorities and the document appoints a special investigator to look into the government's abuses during the months long uprising and also calls for the main un bodies to take action russia and china voted against the resolution saying it might lead to a foreign intervention under the pretext of human rights both moscow and beijing believe the motion ignores crimes committed by the rebels and only aggravate the crisis. we think that it is that all of the international community to help resolve internal crisis through promoting dialogue what we don't understand is why if
8:06 am
that can be done in yemen that cannot apply to see it in syria as a mile from the outset the message which has been set up from some quarters capitals is there is no way dialogue can help those who go into dialogue they should stop it immediately that there is no future in the arab league initiative we believe that this is something very counterproductive and this is something which has exacerbated the situation in syria the international community is not there to to smell blood and to found confrontation but the international community is there to prevent further bloodshed and to encourage it encourage what this is what the united nations is about this is what the security council is about. syria's main opposition group has vowed to cut ties with iran hezbollah and hamas if the current government goes professor your hand gul tung director of the transcend peace university he told us here at r.t. that that agenda goes very well with the regional interests of some other countries
8:07 am
the western intend this of course to split of syria completely from any reigning in connection as they see it in yemen the west is with the leadership and against the opposition. in syria and their video position and against the leadership cutting it much too sharp so it's a question of where the big boys sound a big voice which group and the big boys citing the big west advice so people can visually there is libya being played again we have heard that too in the phone that would probably cost much more and more many more civilians than the lives that will protect and it will set the pattern for the border to go on for a long time. you with r t life still to come this hour here on the program unemployment falls in the united states a sign of recovery or a sign of massaging of the figures. these are real jobs this is a plantation economy we look at whether the recent drop in joblessness reflects the
8:08 am
real state of things since the american economy. plus we investigate how the russian speaking community in the former soviet republic of a stoner is falling victim to what they call their language inquisition often losing jobs for just speaking their native tongue. in britain an article of the human rights act ensures that the right to a family life for those who live there what sounds fair on paper is actually being used in reality by criminals because they can overturn decisions to deport them for their offenses by using the legal loophole that allows them to stay as artie's laura smith reports the right to a family life is not an absolute right and it must not be used to drive a coach and through our immigration system. article eight an innocuous sounding element in the human rights act but which means having children

an illegal bolivian was allowed to stay in this country because of the emotional trauma of separating him from his pet not quite true but it got people talking and noticing much more serious cases including a rapist who successfully argued asylum his social life and a killer who lived with his parents in may this year it was revealed that nearly four thousand foreign criminals were set free from detention centers because it was decided they couldn't be deported within a reasonable time among them dozens of rapists murderers and paedophiles separately last year nearly six hundred people used the human rights act to avoid deportation the vast majority citing the right to a private and family life in the case of amy's killer a series of bungles and delays by the authorities meant that by the time either him came up for deportation he appeared to have created

8:14 am
brussels it's really dangerous i think to centralize power the euro has created a great deal of economic problems to friend and they're going to have you know cap more problems on to that by creating a fiscal union which will mean that governments tax and spend. the sea will in a sense would be wrong form blossoms and frank first that is a new deeply undemocratic about further trouble in the future for the problems with the euro and they really do need to recognize that the euro should be broken up into more manageable parts and countries have control of the only economic policies again and that way they can get growth back into europe at the moment the european economy is just stagnating because it stuck in the straight jacket of the european single currency and those the global economic crisis rages on financial pundit max kaiser continues his mission to expose the shadowy figures behind it his revelations are coming away in about fifteen minutes time but for now

8:24 am
to conduct spontaneous checks on anyone working in any sphere and should a person fail the language exam the body may then initiate the sacking of this employee human right activists say this has turned the language inspection into a punitive body. it is not that they have nothing to say it's just that they believe their voices are being silenced estonia's three hundred thousand strong russian minority has been protesting at what they describe as the language inquisition some of these people either lost their jobs or are on their threat of doing so because they are forbidden from speaking their native language cinema shattering so often cursed soviet power never applied and were stricken the languages the stoniest were free to educate in their language now adays the authorities have almost banned the russian language from schools besides some russian communities don't have qualified teachers who can teach physics or chemistry in a stone in the latest twist five workers at an orphanage were fired for not being
